How do you know how much your personal injury claim is worth?

Law Offices of James M. Curran

When you were traveling home from work, you were suddenly involved in an accident. Another driver didn’t stop when approaching an intersection, and that resulted in a collision. You were hurt in the crash and have been at the hospital ever since.

Your major concern is covering your financial losses during the time when you’re unable to work. There’s no clear answer as to how long you’ll have to be off work, but you do know that your need to have your vehicle repaired, bills paid and medical care covered.

Just how much is your personal injury claim worth?

It would be nice if there was an easy answer, but there isn’t. Every personal injury case is different. For some people, a small amount of compensation is enough to cover their losses. For others, there are going to be hundreds of thousands of dollars in expenses that accrue as a result of their injuries.

Your attorney’s job is to help you fight for the highest settlement or trial award possible. You’ll be able to seek two primary kinds of damages, compensatory damages and punitive damages. With these, you can seek compensation for things such as your medical bills or the damage to your vehicle. You can also ask for compensation for your emotional injuries, pain and suffering, and other impacts that the crash has on your life.

The state may limit how much you can claim, and the other party’s insurance may also have limits to consider. Your attorney will work closely with you to maximize your claim.
